best i have owned
I just bought my second one in 2 years because I had to go down a size. My previous was a Large and was very long in the sleeves and big all around (for reference I am 5'9, 165lbs), I got a medium and it fits Perfectly. The only thing I am not 100% happy with is the fleece in this one is not as soft and heavy as my last one, but it is just as warm and a little lighter so I can't really complain. Very pleased with this jacket and have been for 2 years now.
After my son needed a mid layer for his North Face shell , I decided to get him this for Xmas. After holding it for three weeks and trying it on quite a bit , I decided to purchase one of my own ! Great deal , fit , comfort and use. It's mid winter now and I use it on its own and a mid layer when skiing . It's also light enough just to wear running around. Free shipping and on sale ++ .
Very warm, yet lightweight.
Bought this to replace my everyday lightweight fleece. Very happy with it as my day to day jacket as it fits snugg, not bulky yet very warm. Still waiting to see how it is in wet weather. It is has been perfect for temperatures anywhere from mid 40's down to low 30's. Wish they made it with a hood and although I like the snugg fit, the material causes clothing to bunch up insleeves when putting on.
Great all-around jacket
I primarily use the Divergence jacket for cold weather active sports like backcountry skiing and snowshoeing. It's light enough to not overheat too fast yet warmer than mid or heavy weight base layers. The wind blocker really works and doesn't seem to prevent breathability. The fit is comfortable--not too tight nor too loose. I have shirts and jackets from other technical companies that are sometimes too snug fitting, and I'm a pretty slender guy.
Very warm insulating layer or outer layer in more mild cold weather. Truly superior to lighter weight fleeces if warmth is your goal. Has all the right details: quality zipper, big enough around the neck, very comfy cuffs which keep the warmth in without cinching too much, stretch side panels, and a hem cinch cord. And as always from EMS, no obnoxious brand label. Excellent fleece. The best I've ever owned.
Earlier versions of this jacket had true sherpa pile interior that was super soft fluffy and warm. I have had at least 5 of these of jackets and the newer versions do not have a sherpa pile interior as stated, and are less warm than earlier versions of the same mens divergance jackets
Fleece is comfortable and snug in the right areas; however, it keeps the wind out. Note, I am 5'8" 158 31 waist and 40" chest. I like the understated looks (no logos), and yet it says quality. He panels are placed appropriately and the fleece is a dense.
Love this jacket!
I have an older EMS fleece jacket that I bought about 12 years ago, it is still a great jacket but I wanted a newer one with newer technology. You just can't get any better than this!
I love this jacket and everything about it except I wish that it came in a XXL. I am 6'4" and I need the extra length for a proper fit.
Sleek and warm
Love the fit and colors. Good weight under a jacket, attractive enough for casual dinners out. Bought all available colors in both the quarter zip and full zip.
